Can anybody tell me how to configure the Windows 95 memory management so that I can run decently sized MS-DOS programmes (couple a hundred kilobytes) anyway at all without getting an "out of memory" error message? I already exterminated almost any memory resident programme I could get my claws into. I juggled about with the available memory settings until it began to escape my own memory what tricks I had already tried out. Where can I get reliable information about Windows/DOS memory management?

Are you sure your not trying to run a Linux program ? Chances are, if your running Win95 ok, but cant run a couple hundred kb program, then thats your problem.

Thanks for the answer, but no, that cannot be the problem. Documentation says it is a DOS-based programme, and I saw it running under DOS. But thanks anyway.

Anyway, I would like to retract the question since I just managed to solve this problem myself. I am still not completely sure how Windows manages memory, it is obviously a problem which will need more studying on my behalf. But the problem at hand has been solved.

Hi there,

have you ever tried installing QEMM in stead of simply using Memmaker ?
with QEMM 8, i have about 614Kb free base mem to run Ms-Dos programs.
before, I only had 570 Kb, and some old programs didn't run.
